    You must be joking.

    But we get there on a festive day, and no siege is necessary to get inside.
    It's going to take some time, though.

    Inside the inner gates, a palace.

    Outside, massive fortifications everywhere.

    The third one is just stunning. All of them are very well done.

    Your post shows it's not the camera but the photographer. You are using the first version of camera and still getting good pictures lol I have e-pl1 also and your photos are holding me from getting a new camera. My picture quality suddenly is not going to change because of the camera. Therefore I'm investing in lens lol I am also enjoying the pictures from India because I am from India and I am Sikh also. You captured both elements in your photos. I look forward to more posts from you.

    The third image is GREAT. I honestly wouldn't be surprised to see such a shot in National Geographic. I wonder, what was done in post with this image? The sky is almost surrealistically dark. I love it!

    On the other hand, I find the last one a little too contrasty, which exaggerates the reddish tone. It just looks a little off to me. Cool shot nonetheless!

    Both are quite pushed and pulled, the first to underline architecture details, the last to give the same vivid impression I had after walking up (and down!) in all that light.

    The dramatic sky settings for LR are here
